NOTD: Circusy nails with added elephants!

I thought I'd try something fun in between all the sober-ish manis I've been doing...


NOTE: I am not a Republican! I'm Australian, it didn't even cross my mind that elephants were associated with the GOP until I finished... I just like elephants! :(

The base is a franken I made from ulta3 Spring Shower. I love light blue, but this one on my nails was a bit too bright, so I toned it down by adding a tiny bit of black. It looks fab on me now, though I doubt anyone can tell the difference!


I freehanded the elephant using ulta3 Earl Grey and TBN Nails Rain on My Parade, and used two coats of Milani Gems on the ring finger. Then I stamped BM-203 using Earl Grey on the rest of my fingers and mattified the whole lot using Rimmel Matte Pro.

Ridiculous? Or wearable? I'm still undecided!

  1. Hehehe, this is kinda cute! There was a circus in town here recently that I wanted to go to but the boyfriend had to work... and I'm afraid of clowns lol.

    If I had have gone, this would have so been the nails I would wear lol

    1. Thanks! Just keep at it - having a good teacher definitely helps. Trying more than one tutor if you can, and Googling alternate explanations of things (a lot of universities have their lecture notes online) can help a lot!
